A Burial at Sea

Charles Finch, read by James Langton. Tantor Media, unabridged, seven CDs, 9 hrs., $39.99 ISBN 978-1-4526-0458-9
James Langton’s narration of the latest title in Finch’s Victorian-era historical whodunit series captures the suspense and drama of a high-stakes murder investigation carried out at sea. Although veteran sleuth Charles Lenox is now a member of parliament and looking to leave his detecting days behind, he travels to Egypt following the murder of several British spies. Before he arrives, Lenox finds himself looking into a brutal crime onboard the ship transporting him through the Suez Canal. Thanks to Langton’s ability to create unique voices, listeners will have no trouble distinguishing the many characters. And with a killer stalking the crew, Langton infuses his narration with tension, ably handling the book’s final reveal—an essential requirement of an audio whodunit. A Minotaur hardcover. (Nov.)
